Names that IMO are viable from your list:
Magdalen - Love this name so elegant and pretty.
Ola - Spunky and underused.
Camille - I'm a sucker for a little Millie.
Harper - Not my favorite name but still viable.
Stella - This name is okay a little over loved. Do you like Estelle/a as well?
Ocean - A more modern day name.
Verity - I like Vera as a nn to this as well. It's pretty.
Snow - Makes me think of Snow White. Not a bad thing though.
Lux - Love this name if you have a really blonde girl.
Calla - Just don't make the middle name Lily.
Your combinations that I think flow well:

Paloma _ a recent favorite. Paloma still seems unusual to me though it's fairly popular and recognizable.
Keturah_ despite it's history this seems made up to me.
Magdalen_ prefer Magdalena
Ola_ Prefer Ora or Oona. The first two more as nn's.
Harper_nms. In theory I like it, in actuality it seems just out of my grasp of apprechiation.
Stella_nms. I work PT in a restaurant to pay my way through school - I hear Stella and think Beer.
Ocean_ beautiful word.
Verity_ neat. Could be a nice mn.
Snow_ kind of cool but it wants me to ask if she will have seven little brothers or dogs or cats.
Lux_ again in theory I like it. But I keep thinking it's a nn for Luxury and that seems pretentious.
Calla_ Love Calla would actually think it was a really cool nature name combo if it were combined with Liliy = Calla Liliy.
Verbena _ I think Tea. Once again working at a restaurant probably doesn't help.
A few combinations I like:
Paloma Camille - nms.
Magdalen Lux - I'd prefer Magdalena Lux.
Harper Snow - too wordy for me. (As in too many actual words).
Verbena Ocean - nms.
Calla Snow - I'd prefer Calla Lily or Calla Paloma.
Verity Ocean - prefer this to Verbena Ocean.
Keturah Harper - dnms.
Verbena Lux - I don't love either name individually so the combo falls a little flat.EXPECTING OUR FIRST, A GIRL, IN MAY 2016.

Man, some of you are being super harsh! I guess it does say to be honest.
Paloma~Mi nombre en la clase de espanol. Sorry, I can't do accents on this computer... Anyways, beautiful name, and I can say from experience that it's very wearable.
Keturah~Bible-yyyyyyyy. Not a good thing in my book, but if you're into that sorta thing....Also I always call my cats Kitusha, and it reminds me of that. But I guess that's only a problem for me.
Magdalen~Ditto. Except even more Bible-y.
Ola~Hola to you too! Ok unless you live in an area with a lot of Spanish speakers.
Camille~It's sweet and lacy. I'm not a lacy girl, but it isn't bad.
Harper~I don't mind it, but I do hear it a lot.
Stella~Solid. Nothing bad about it. Not wildly amazing either.
Ocean~Awesome in the middle, as are Snow and Lux. Pretty out there in the front spot, and I love out there names.
Verity~A bit upper crust, but it's still pretty.
Verbena~Interesting nature name that I hadn't heard of before. I like it.
None of them are bad. There's some I like more than others, but they're all fine names. Your combos all work together to me.

...ahem...jame1881, that was kinda directed toward you...
I get it though, some people have strong opinions. No hate.
